The following publisher channels are eligible to participate in the Affiliate Program:
Admission to the Affiliate Program
Publishers can submit a request to participate in the Affiliate program of de Bijenkorf, after which de Bijenkorf will assess - partly on the basis of the program terms listed below - whether the publisher is suitable for participation. De Bijenkorf has a closed Affiliate program and reserves the right to refuse applications. The publisher's website must be ready before the publisher signs up for the Affiliate program of de Bijenkorf.
By submitting an application request, the publisher declares to agree to the program terms of the Affiliate program of the Bijenkorf (hereinafter: “Program terms”). On acceptance of the application request of publisher by de Bijenkorf, the participation of the Publisher will constitute a legally binding agreement entered into by the publisher and de Bijenkorf, to which these Program Terms apply (hereinafter: the “Agreement”). These Program Terms and the Agreement are governed exclusively by Dutch law. The applicability of the Vienna Sales Convention (CISG) is expressly excluded. The competent court in Amsterdam is exclusively competent to hear disputes between de Bijenkorf and the Publisher that arise from the Agreement or these Program Terms.
De Bijenkorf is entitled to change the Program terms. In principle, important changes will be announced to the publisher by e-mail and will take effect seven (7) days after the announcement, or on a different date stated in the announcement. If a publisher does not wish to accept the changes, the publisher may terminate his / her participation in the Affiliate Program by e-mail from the date the change takes effect. The cancellation must have been received by de Bijenkorf and Awin before the effective date of the change. Since changes are corresponded by e-mail, the publisher is obliged to provide a valid e-mail address when registering and notify de Bijenkorf and Awin of any changes in the contact details in time.
When registering with Awin's Affiliate Marketing Network, the publisher also agrees to the Awin Standard Terms for Publishers (“Standard Terms”). If Awin and the publisher have agreed on deviating terms, the publisher shall inform de Bijenkorf thereof prior to participating in the Affiliate program of de Bijenkorf. Applicability of general terms and conditions used by the Publisher is hereby explicitly rejected.

Publishers are obligated to delete this data after the campaigns and participation in the Affiliate program is terminated.

This mainly focuses on the percentage of new visitors, which must be at least 30%. If a publisher has been found to be inactive for three consecutive months (0 sales), de Bijenkorf can decide to terminate the collaboration.
In any case, de Bijenkorf is at all times entitled to terminate the cooperation under this Affiliate program by e-mail without giving any reason, subject to a notice period of two (2) weeks.
